Impeachment begins

“Today, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA), joined by Congressman Al Green (D-TX), introduced an Article of Impeachment (H. Res. 438) against President Donald J. Trump for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.  The Article is based on Article 1, dealing with “Obstruction of Justice,” which was passed by the Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan vote on July 27, 1974, regarding Richard M. Nixon.  Sherman circulated a draft Article on June 12, 2017, and has been conferring with colleagues and legal experts from around the country since then.”

Despite a month in the planning, Sherman was only able to get one co-sponsor, Alexander “Al” Green, D-Houston, a former NAACP leader, who has been accused of sexual assault and (oh, so forgetful) failing to report $300,000 in campaign contributions.

Or, Trump could fire himself, due to his son’s interest in colluding with the Kremlin. Or something.
